Gillingham 1-3 Doncaster Rovers

John Marquis scored against his former club to give Doncaster Rovers victory over Gillingham.

Marquis hit his 16th goal of the season when his deflected shot from close range crept past Gills goalkeeper Tomas Holy.

Only a scuffed shot from the Rovers striker following Herbie Kane's short corner prevented him from making it 2-0 in first-half stoppage time.

On-loan striker Mallik Wilks, who threatened throughout for the visitors, capitalised on a mix-up between Holy and Connor Ogilvie to double their advantage nine minutes after the break.

Grant McCann's side sealed their sixth away league victory of the season when Danny Andrew's 20-yard volley - his first in the league for the Yorkshire club - beat an unsighted Holy.

Having beaten league leaders Portsmouth on Wednesday, the Gills managed just one shot on goal before Callum Reilly's deflected consolation goal two minutes from time.
